We offer several different breeds of Hen.

A Point Of Lay pullet (P.O.L.) is a bird aged between 16 and 18 weeks which is just prior to the onset of laying eggs. This means that within a few weeks the Pullet will start laying and become a "Laying Hen". The hen will then lay around 5 to 6 eggs a week consistently, for one to two years.

We are more than happy to provide advice to customers.
